New Power Plant Will Help Electric Cars Run "Greener"
On May 1, Biomass Investment Group, Inc (BIG) announced plans to build a Central Florida power plant that uses E-Grass for fuel, instead of coal. The plant's contract is for 25 years, and during that time, it's expected to save 9 million tons of coal and 20 million tons of carbon dioxide emissions. Because the E-Grass will be grown on site, the plant is called a "closed loop;" the growing grasses will take in as much CO2 as the smoke stacks emit. So if you live in one of the 83,000 homes powered by the plant, then by all means, run out and buy a plug-in kit for your Prius. [Source: Progress Energy Florida]
